Course Overview

The bachelor’s degree course in Agricultural Engineering is an undergraduate course at the Adeleke University, which discusses the the application of the knowledge of engineering principles to agriculture. The course educate students in the analysis and design of machinery, animal housing, and environmental systems for the production, processing, storage, handling, distribution, and use of food, feed, fiber and other biomaterials. It also looks into the management of related natural resources, by integrating basic physical and biological sciences with engineering design principles. Other core topics explored in Agricultural Engineering include, buildings and structures, agricultural electrification and energy, agricultural processing and food engineering, soil and water conservation and water resources management.

Graduates of the Agricultural Engineering degree course enhance agricultural practices with technology, modern practices and all forms of engineering skills. The agriculture field could have remained obsolete and small scale without the deployment of machineries, tools, equipment and processes made possible by Agricultural Engineers. The course if offered at the Adeleke University to introduce you to the gaps often filled by agricultural engineers, using both theoretical and practical approaches.  

By completing the degree course, you will be able to apply engineering skills to improve agricultural practices of any scale.
